I killed my last bike a couple of weeks ago. The frame broke. I wish I could tell some gnarly story, but the bike was 15 years old and the frame busted while I was riding uphill.
I now am choosing between three bikes. These are the ONLY three bikes I’m choosing between (insert long story), so there is no need to say, “Why not try the . . . (bike).”
It’s three and only three choices. They are:
Specialized 04 FSR XC
Haro Extreme X1
Giant Warp DS 2
I’d like to hear experiences with these particular bikes or with THESE brand names in comparable price ranges ($700-$800 dollars).
